that Haley's Comment animation at halftime that showed Jacks head on a comet flying across the screen was comical
Stu wasn't so bad when Chick was around. Chick kept him in check. But once he left us, Stu acted above every play-by-play guy he's been with. It doesn't show as much now. Mostly because Billy Mac is an easy-going, lovable guy. Stu would have to be a real jerk to bicker with him all game.
But with Joel Myers, adding two semi-jerks in the same broadcasting booth just didn't work. They bickered and disagreed all game, mostly because Stu would question just about everything Joel would say.
And every comment he has on the game is "young fella shoulda done this", or "you CANNOT do this if you're gonna do that", almost scolding the players. And my favorite: "time and time again I've always said _____"
His knowledge is alright, but delivery isn't always pleasant. But I'll I give it up to Stu for being critical of bad basketball, whether it's the Lakers or the opponent. He's professional, even on the "local" level.
After seeing my share of games on stream & league pass, there are some TERRIBLE color/play-by-play guys... Stu is annoying, but still among the better ones IMO
